Touch-up scratches w/marker

I have a dark blue ford van and I don't want to go to all the trouble of
fixing scratches properly, the van looks pretty good, and its a work truck
anyway. However I have noticed that if I just hit the slight scratches with
an ordinary permanent black marker they essentially dissappear. Which is
great except that the marker turns out to be not so permanent and is gone in
a week or two. Anyone have a similar permanent solution?

Thanks Rob

Re: Touch-up scratches w/marker

Buy the smallest paint brush at an arts and craft store and a can of spray
paint

Spray some in the cap and touch it up, maybe 2 times

The thinner paint in a can works better with small scratches then touch-up
paint that is much thicker

Re: Touch-up scratches w/marker

It's been my experience that unless some time is spent doing it right that
touch-up paint generally looks like a glob of crap.

Re: Touch-up scratches w/marker

Can you wet sand the paint glob down with 2000 grit? Does this work well on
a Subaru paint job with its clear coat?

LOL... and you think using a magic marker looks better?

Sounds like your van is a glob of crap anyway, so what's a little
more? If you're not willing to do the job right,
then you deserve everything you get.

I have tried touchup paint on numerous occasions and
had no problems. I haven't tried magic marker on anything I
cared about.
